To find and follow your calling is a great quest. At Designing & Leading Transformational Workshops, you’ll get clear about your path as a leader with a vision and mission statement. You’ll discover what holds you back from fulfilling your calling, and learn how to guide yourself in making goals and objectives for your workshop. And you’ll begin to write your tentative title, description, and “take-aways” for your workshop, crafting your message to appeal to four distinct personality types.
We’ll walk through all four phases of the workshop design process: Vision, Design, Delivery, and Follow-Up. And we’ll explore how to create the conditions for transformation using the Experiential Learning Cycle, which consists of three elements: Safety, Experience, and Integration (S-E-I, for short). The S-E-I Cycle will help you to design short or long workshops, and it will guide you any time you lead people in mind-body experiences.
You’ll learn how to turn your core teachings into mind-body experiences from an insider’s point of view. You’ll get clues to making your workshops more dynamic and holistic. And our Ways of Inviting Full Participation will help you to breathe life and interactivity into your workshops.
Designing & Leading culminates in the presentation of two mini-workshops (one 20 minutes and the other 30 minutes) by each workshop participant to a small group of peers. The workshop is designed to scaffold your learning so that you’ll feel confident in your design and leadership abilities. And the mini-workshop sessions are designed to gather feedback from your peers so that you’ll have a clear idea of your areas of strength and one or two areas of improvement.
This is a 5-day workshop offered every April at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.
